You will have experience working in the residential sector, ideally directly for a house builder or within consultancy, working with residential developer clients. REVIT is highly desirable, as is a good understanding of house building processes, building regulations and the planning process.

You enjoy working to a high standard and look forward to resolving challenges on site, tackling them head on. As architectural manager you will be managing juniors and so there is an expectation you have managed a team/junior previously.

Critically, you will be a 'people person' and thrive off working in an energetic team environment. Innovation and progression are what drive you.
